Welcome to the winter solstice, the end of the week, the end of the Mayan calendar, and supposedly, the end of the world (as we know it?).
The Heartland weather today is snow showers, with falling temperatures throughout the day, ending with a "guesstimated" total accumulation of between 1-3 inches, depending on where you live (and how many asteroids strike your property).
With our first snowfall, you really need to drive (more) defensively out there today, making sure to give yourself more time to get where you're headed, and always allow extra stopping distance.
Watch for slippery conditions and black ice, because we want you ALL to be able to enjoy the holidays (along with my pungent social commentary...lol).
And, with our world coming to an end at ANY minute, let's not linger any longer, but get right into the muck and the mire which is what's been going on around us in the past 24 hours.
*** The 29th HOMICIDE victim in Allen County (and Ft. Wayne) has been ID'ed.
Here's the link:
Yes, Ramareo Debrad Booher was described as a loving father of two (and all of NINETEEN years of age)...busy fellow.
Despite recent run-ins with police (resisting, false informing, disorderly, coversion, and noise ordinance violations - since 2010), he WAS trying to get into Ivy Tech and study Physics.
Still, it makes you wonder HOW a person winds up DEAD in an alley from a gunshot wound (that no one seemed to hear) in the ghettohood days before Christmas.
I still think he was dumped there (if no one heard the shots).
He was working two jobs to support his two children.
Makes me shudder whenever I see (basically) kids having kids.
DOGS driving CARS?
(oops...spoke too soon there)
Now THAT would be a sign of the end times!
You can also check MY archives for 7 December 2012.
At THAT time, police were looking for FIVE suspects in connection with a robbery that netted a significant amount of money, and during which several shots were fired. Seems the perps are still at large.
*** 'Tis the season to be FRAUDULENT (at least by ONE woman).
Here's the link:
Here we have a 57-year old woman writing a slew of bad checks to several businesses, including a Christian bookstore.
Isn't that kind OLD to be doing such DUMB sh*t?
Charged with 6 felonies, the total run-up for Cindy J. Stanley is about $11,700...!
Cindy has had a LONG financial history of such crimes, and was convicted in 2011 for a similar check fraud offense in Kalamazoo, MI.
So, she came HERE to apply her "craft"?
Sorry, toots...it just ain't your week...happy holidays.
Hope you like wearing ORANGE.
*** Now, about this end of the world gig...
I look at it as though maybe it's not OUR world that's going bye-bye, but rather the world that's been headed to Hades for some time now.
It's the whole alternative universe thingy.
Tell 'ya, I wouldn't be sad to see certain ASPECTS of our world end, that's for sure.
-- Iran, along with most of the other towel head Jihadists over there...yeah, they can come to an end. Wouldn't miss them one damn bit.
-- All these secular progressives who want to turn OUR America into some socialist, one-world state clone...yes, they can also come to an end...and I'll be cheering that one on.
-- The criminals that make life for everyone else a nightmare (on a good day) - they can just end as well.
I would miss them as much as I would miss pounding my man-bits flat with a wooden mallet.
-- The stoners and the drunks...they sure could go away and the world would become a much better place.
-- If rap and hip-hop came to an end today, along with Mr. Gangnam -style, there would be a shout of joy heard 'round the world (at least at MY house)...then we could get back to producing GOOD music again.
QUITE a few politicians that I would most certainly NOT MISS if they up and went away (and the farther and faster, the better).
Then, we could place REAL Americans in their stead and begin the arduous task of restoring this nation to it's rightful role.
So you can see there are some GOOD things that can come out of ANY apocalypse...if it's done right...lol.
THERE, we can move forward, and with a better handle on what we need to accomplish as well as what we want to accomplish.
In that, I think we might all be around for a lot longer than the Hopi, or the Mayans thought we would be.
So take some time to finish your Christmas shopping...go out and buy a gun (or two) and help our economy...and be sure to ignore those cracks appearing in the earth and those huge rocks falling from the sky.
It's probably just CGI, anyway...you know Hollywood.
SAFE out there, America.
